We the People


Aug 17, 2017 to Oct 29, 2017
10:00 AM until 06:00 PM


Minnesota Museum of American Art (the M) presents We the People, inviting four guest curators to select work by prominent local and national artists that sheds light on the complexities of contemporary American experience. This exhibition continues the M’s engagement with critical issues about American art which began two years ago with the show American Art: It’s Complicated.

“We the people,” the opening words of the U.S. Constitution, serves as a national slogan and a rallying cry. But who constitutes the “we” in that formative phrase?

In response to that question, Christopher Harrison (independent curator and artist), Johnnay Leenay (Minnesota Museum of American Art), Mary Anne Quiroz (Indigenous Roots Cultural Center), and Maggie Thompson (Two Rivers Art Gallery) present artworks with disparate cultural points of view. Artists include Star Wallowing Bull, Zackary Drucker, Rico Gatson, Susan Hauptman, Nooshin Hakim Javadi, Steve Ozone, and others. 

Exhibition hours: Thursday & Friday, 11 a.m. – 6 p.m.; Saturday & Sunday, 10 a.m. – 4 p.m.


Admission is free and open to the public
